Belle’s Box – 2-14

This entry is part 168 of 342 in the series Belle's Box

Read about this series of posts, regarding items in a box originally owned by Belle (Lamunion) Fellows Tinker here.  The cast of characters is located here.  And, there is an accounting of people about whom I have little information here.

The numbering of these posts had been modified to signify that I am posting items from my archival book two, hence the 2-xx numbering.  The posts from this book will contain more thumbnails, you will find that the pages with signatures, text and other important details will enlarge upon clicking.

With Love to [Grand] Mother
on her day



[To a loving sweet Mother and Grandmother.]

Here’s a happy greeting, [Grand-] Mother
And an extra word of cheer,
For the home
you’ve made so happy,
And toe home-ties
kept so dear!

Your loving grandchildren
Henry & Esther

There are quite a number of communications from Henry Z. Smith to his grandmother in the collection.  This one was apparently written after Henry’s marriage to Esther.  Esther Marquart Smith was a wonderful, loving lady and it does not surprise that if she was the writer, that she took the time to personalize this card and send a message.

  1. Pam, the card of that time had a certain look about them, didn’t they? Do you have an idea of the year this one was sent? Again, wonderful idea.

  2. Yes, they look like a different time and place, but we recognize that time. The earlier post cards don’t do that for me, of course (big grin) I’m too young to remember them.
